Biological response to climate change. 
The Ohio State University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on developing a web-based system for acquisition and analysis of meteorological, environmental and satellite-based data for the study of global bird migration routes and behavior. 
Funding is available for 2 years through a project funded by the NASA biological response to climate change initiative (URL: Specifically, the work will involve developing a GUI based system for data processing as part of the Movebank migration tracking portal (URL:, and developing statistical algorithms that will be used in the development of behavioral models and hypothesis driven research of animal movement and management of migratory species. 
The work will be in collaboration with researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Ornithology in Radolfzell, Germany and other government and academic institutions in the US. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work in both the US and Germany during the project. 
Requirements – A PhD in Ecology, Earth Sciences, Computer Science, Statistics or Environmental Engineering. Experience in more than one of the following areas: computer programming, atmospheric modeling, web-based data analysis, spatial statistics, and migration studies. 
Application: please send a CV to GIL BOHRER (EM: Please list the names, e-mails and phone number of two people we could contact for a recommendation. Applications accepted before 15 Jul will receive full review. Start date is flexible, between Oct 2011 and Mar 2012. For more details see (URL:
